AlexG DSUAlexander Giannascoli, aka Alex G, is a 21-year-old multi-instrumentalist and native of Philadelphia who has been writing songs as far back as he can remember. He recorded his first material around age 12, and by the time he was a senior in high school his music began surfacing online. Following a slew of recordings he self-released over the years through his Bandcamp page, Alex spent 2013 writing and recording a proper, full-length record titled "DSU" that will see a release on Brooklyn label Orchid Tapes on June 17th, 2014.

From the initial moments spent with his music, one might consider his lyrical approach as hyper-personal. Alex often employs guided and reserved reminiscence to craft each song into a unique story. Despite how honest and emotionally-heavy his music comes across, he’s quick to mention that there is no definitive motive behind the new album.

“On this record, as well as my other stuff, I usually am influenced by my relationships and experiences with people,” says Alex. “I think plenty of personal obstacles have shaped my music, but nothing I would like to share.”

It’s that sense of mystery that makes Alex G’s music so compelling and, ultimately, timeless.
